A Bell Jet Ranger helicopter, model 206-A, made its debut in Saudi Arabia in 1967, when it was tested before being used on Aramco’s offshore drilling platform. The turbine-powered aircraft was the first of its kind to be used in Aramco operations. It was used to carry technicians and equipment to offshore facilities and to transport emergency medical cases. It could carry slings up to 1,100 pounds. Photo: S.M. Amin
